Challengers & Icons Interview

Series 2. Episode 9. The Global Poverty Project – How to innovate to create change for good

I said I want to try to see what I can do to innovate around this challenge of the end of extreme poverty. At that stage I didn't really know how it was going to come to fruition but it was a commitment that I made out of sheer frustration and also out of a question of scale.” Hugh Evans, The Global Poverty Project

The Global Poverty Project is an international education and advocacy organisation working to end extreme poverty by 2030. Since its launch, more than a quarter of million global citizen supporters have joined the project led by founder & CEO, Hugh Evans.

Hugh’s top 3 tips on approaching change

  • Right from the start consider how you will deliver service at scale – every other decision and commitment will stem from this.
  • Embrace technology. Innovative content fueled by technology should create a powerful ecosystem of connection and ultimately action.
  • Bring creative minds together from all industries and disciplines to achieve the greatest outcome.
